I’m so sorry, Marley K. Our lives do seem quite similar indeed, and I’m taken aback by how much this piece keeps resonating…

It sends shivers down my spine every time someone claps for it or comments, because it means there’s so much pain out there.

For my part, I wish I could excise my entire childhood and adolescence from my brain. Although it has wiped entire years, I still remember things I’d rather forget.

I still have no idea how all this is going to pan out but I know for sure I have to protect myself these days, which I didn’t always do.
